Drivers Ian Loggie and Julian Westwood, who took the class win at the Nürburgring 1000 in 2014, will again be driving the Team Parker Racing car.

I.S.R. Racing will field brothers Anders and Thomas Fjordbach in one of the team’s pair of Audi R8 LMS ultra that will be lined up in the Blancpain Sprint Series.

Anders’ programme will also involve the Blancpain Endurance Series, where he will compete alongside two drivers to be decided in the next few weeks.

Danish drivers Martin Jensen and Dennis Andersen will defend the colours of Insight Racing for the fourth consecutive year in 2015 in their Ferrari.

Emil Frey Racing will again field their unique Jaguar with drivers yet to be announced.

Leonard Motorsport AMR has entered the 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series with its V12 Vantage GT3 in the Pro-Am class and an all-British line-up Stuart Leonard, Paul Wilson and Michael Meadows.

This follows a 2014 season, the team’s debut in GT3, which saw the team enter three of the championship’s events (plus a VLN programme too), narrowly missing out on a podium spot at the BES race in Germany.

The team ran as high as fifth in class at the Total 24 Hours of Spa too.

The team, which welcomes Brookland Speed, Avalux Ltd as a new commercial partner for the upcoming season, will contest the centre-piece of the championship, the Total 24 Hours of Spa, alongside an Aston Martin Racing works driver to be confirmed nearer the time.

Stuart Leonard: “Leonard Motorsport is very excited to be back in what we see as the best GT racing series in the world. The quality of drivers and teams is unrivalled and, as competitive drivers, that’s where we want measure ourselves; against the best. We have learned a lot in our collective first season of GT3 racing and we look forward in taking that knowledge into a campaign where we hope we can challenge for Pro-Am class honours.”

Michael Meadows: “We made significant progress throughout last year. With the V12 Vantage GT3 we have a good package that will be competitive. The aim is obviously to go and win some races, something I feel is certainly achievable. The team has come together well over the winter, and we want to use our experience from the events last year to give ourselves the best chance. Personally, the highlight will be competing in Total 24 Hours of Spa again, and although we showed well last year, this year a podium has to be the target.”
